Joe Biden is not officially President-elect.
All the votes have not yet been certified.
And now Joe Biden left Americans speechless with a plan to replace Donald Trump.
Joe Biden claimed the election gave him a mandate to tackle the coronavirus and replace Donald Trump’s plan to reopen the economy.
President Trump warned Americans during the campaign that Biden’s only plan was to lockdown the economy.
Even though Joe Biden told ABC News he would shut down the economy with a panic lockdown, Biden falsely told voters he had no intention of imposing another lockdown.
Biden showed his true colors after the media proclaimed him President-elect.
In the days after this proclamation Biden began usurping the powers of the President and named a coronavirus taskforce chockfull of fanatical supporters of lockdowns.
One of the most high-profile members was Dr. Michael Osterholm of the University of Minnesota.
Dr. Osterholm wasted no time going on a media tour of MSNBC, Yahoo and CNBC proclaiming his support for a four to six week national lockdown.
“We could pay for a package right now to cover all of the wages, lost wages for individual workers, for losses to small companies, to medium-sized companies or city, state, county governments. We could do all of that,” Dr. Osterholm claimed.
In his interviews Dr. Osterholm claimed America could just borrow trillions upon trillions of dollars to pay Americans to stay home.
“If we did that, then we could lock down for fourtosix weeks,” Dr. Osterholm added.
Dr. Osterholm referenced an op-ed he co-authored with Minnesota Federal Reserve Bank President Neel Kashkari claiming that America did not follow Europe’s lead last spring and did not impose house arrest-style lockdowns.
“To successfully drive down our case rate to less than one per 100,000 people per day, we should mandate sheltering in place for everyone but the truly essential workers. By that, we mean people must stay at home and leave only for essential reasons: food shopping and visits to doctors and pharmacies while wearing masks and washing hands frequently,” Osterholm and Kashkari wrote.
Osterholm and Kashkari falsely claimed Europe’s lockdown succeeded where America’s supposedly “failed” by American governments allowing too many people to go back to work.
“According to the Economic Policy Institute, 39 percent of workers in the United States are in essential categories. The problem with the March-to-May lockdown was that it was not uniformly stringent across the country. For example, Minnesota deemed 78 percent of its workers essential. To be effective, the lockdown has to be as comprehensive and strict as possible,” they added.
When Osterholm and Kashkari published this op-ed in August the fake news media held Europe up as an example of how to manage the pandemic and to unfavorably compare to Donald Trump’s handling of the pandemic and pushing to reopen the economy.
But since then, cases in Europe exploded which destroyed the myth pushed by Osterholm that lockdowns “crush” the virus.
The reality of the situation is Joe Biden always intended to lockdown America if he won the election even if the facts and the science prove that lockdowns may even kill more people than the virus.
And now that Joe Biden thinks he is President-elect the mask is off.
